Daisy, Daisy Gillard works in her father's small antique's shop
in an English village. While at a party with her current and totally
unsuitable boyfriend, she has a brief conversation with Jules der
Huizma. After a break up with her boyfriend, she accompanies an
antique silk screen to Holland, where she again encounters the handsome
two have several other unplanned meetings while she's in Holland
and it doesn't take either very long to realize they are in love.
Unfortunately for both Daisy and Jules, he's an honorable man. He's
also engaged to another woman, who although she does not love him,
has absolutely no intentions of releasing him from their engagement.
Things seem dark and hopeless for the two would-be lovers.
Daisy touched me as few of Betty Neels' novels ever have. Although
I knew there would be a happy ending, I was so drawn into the romance
that for the time I read it, it became my world. I found my eyes
filling with tears on occasions. And because Discovering Daisy allows
the reader into the hero's head more frequently than previous Neels'
romances have, I could fully identify with Jules. During the dark
times, I felt as if my heart would break right along with Daisy
and Jules. I felt their despair and shared in their joy in each
my collection of Betty Neels' romances only includes some seventy
books, I have read nearly all her books. I've enjoyed some books
more than others. Some (like a Star Looks Down, Cassandra By
Chance, The Edge of Winter, Last April Fair, and Tangled Autumn)
are keepers and I've reread them often, others I never reread. Discovering
Daisy is definitely one I will reread many times in the years
to come. If you want to read a love story that will tug at your
heart while delighting and enchanting you, pick up a copy of Discovering
Daisy and fall in love along with Daisy and Jules.
